2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Tara Normal webcomic, and to celebrate I’ve collected the complete series into a beautiful, 152 page full-color book.
STRETCH GOALS ARE HERE: Any physical reward levels $25 and up get all of the stretch goals we unlock. The $20 Early Bird Reward Level also gets these stretch goals.
Tara Normal is a paranormal detective who solves supernatural mysteries with the help of her potato chip loving, interdimensional traveling, best friend – Shadowman.
Tara Normal: The Complete Webcomic Series includes 5 of the most thrilling cases of Tara's investigative career. From creepy talking dolls to adorable zombie dogs, Tara bravely battles every bizarre challenge that comes her way.
There's even an alternate timeline version of herself: "Evil" Tara Normal!
Inspired by all the spooky movies I watched growing up in the 1980's on Up All Night with Rhonda Shear, Commander USA's Groovie Movies and USA's Saturday Nightmares, Tara Normal features creepy stories but told with tons of humor and colorful art. Our hero isn't afraid of the monsters hiding under her bed.
The spirit of Tara Normal is that anything can - and does -happen in this book. If I thought of it, I put it in there.
That’s why Tara encounters such fun characters as Baby Cthulhu, Painbow Fright, the Goatman, Frankenstein Lawyer, a cemetery filled with the zombie versions of 80’s celebrities, and a 70 foot tall Teddy Roosevelt…who carries a trident and lives under the Baltimore Harbor.
You can preview more art pages from the book at my website.
There are a ton of unique rewards and experiences available including a Jason Hawes autograph reward package, the first ever Tara Normal necklace (designed by Lunar Star Collections), Tara Normal shirts and much, much more.
Here are some of the great rewards we are offering.
You are also able to add-on any item you like to your reward level. Example: Do you want a Tara Normal necklace in addition to your book? Add $20.
I've set up stretch goals that can transform this book into a 200 page compendium boasting a huge special features section that includes the first Tara Normal 5 page pitch comic, a giant art gallery and the Tara comic strips as seen in TAPS Paramagazine, the official publication of the show Ghost Hunters on SyFy. In these humorous comics strips, Tara ghost hunts with paranormal reality stars such as Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, Amy Bruni and Adam Berry from the shows Ghost Nation, Ghost Hunters and Kindred Spirits.
I couldn’t create my book - and have copies to sell at the shows to new readers -without your help. Through the past 3 successful Kickstarter campaigns, you’ve helped me continue creating and drawing original, independent comic book stories.
Thank you for celebrating 10 years of Tara Normal with me.
Risks and challenges
As I'm writing this, the artwork for Tara Normal: The Complete Webcomic Series is 100% completed so any risk is minimal. I have previously run & delivered ON TIME three successful Kickstarter campaigns in the past. I love this site for offering indie creators the chance to self-publish and bring unique comics to new readers.
I promise to update all of my backers in case any unforeseen "Acts of God" arise such as printing and manufacturing delays.
